The $300 Movie
A game finding a movie title based on two clues
soup aisle (2), candy aisle (14)
The $300 Movie is a game played using the television monitors scattered throughout the market. Found in the " Big Sweep", David will "Activate the TV Monitors!", enabling the game to begin.
The $300 Movie, the
Alphabet Game, the Breakfast Break, the Jolly Time Is Money!, the Red Tag Special and the Splitting the Name bonuses all made their debut in 2001.
There were two television monitors located in the market, each possessing a clue leading to a movie located in the store's movie display. The monitor locations always stayed constant, and contestants could receive their clues by pushing the monitors' buttons, which also activate red lights surrounding the buttons, signifying the monitors were properly working. Throughout the sweep, David would say "Activate the TV monitors" over the loudspeaker, which informed the contestants that the game was ready to play.
By changing the number of monitors from 3 to 2, new money makers using the TV monitors were able to be played.

When David was explaining how to use the TV monitors, the word "Clue" appeared to let the contestants know that there would be a clue on the screen once they activated it.

The store's Video section
In 2002, the store relabeled its "Videos" section as "Movies", possibly due to the creation of the DVD format.
